Yay, I have a shop. Its not got a lot in it yet but i've got one! Need to take more pics of my work and get them all priced and uploaded. Also have more supplies on the way so I'll have even more pieces hopefully by the end of the month! Lots of kilt pins, cabochans, threads and wires on the way. Feeling very inspired!

Another DC Update...

Heres another update on the DC piece i'm working on. I've worked in all the base colours, added a bit of tone and the base for the vines.

Also got a few more pieces of jewellery made so I will upload them soon once they're all framed!

My First Tutorial...

Hello everyone! I have created my very first tutorial. It was great fun and I can't wait to do more (whenever i get the time lol!) It's a tutorial about how to create a kilt pin brooch by using a real kilt pin instead of the ones with the jump rings already attached. It came from some comments on Deviant Art with The One Marina So I thought I'd give a tutorial a go and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, although my technical drawing ability isn't what it used to be lol! Hope it helps some people with their jewellery making =D

Also a (small) update with the women of D.C. piece. I worked the colour of Ivy a wee bit and will continue with Batman and the background today.
To do:
Batman Colour
Background Colour
Highlights & Shadows
us anything else I can think of

So after Uni I finally decided I would start drawing for myself again! 4 years of project work driven by design briefs and personal opinion of tutors determining whether I was good or not gets a little bit tiring and can put you off drawing altogether. But after reading Hush by Jeff Loeb and Jim Lee, plus a little encouragement from my other half, I got the inspiration to do a wee D.C piece of my own. Just something silly and fun and in my own simple style. So I decided to base it on my favourite heroines and villainess’ of D.C. I know this has probably been done to death, but I want a turn lol =D

The characte
rs I’ve sketched are Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Huntress, Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Hawkgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane and Batman. I’ve had fun doing the initial sketches although I had a bit of troble trying to get the pose for Huntress right. Now I've started colouring my first one which is Poison Ivy and Batman. Once they’re all finished I’ll edit them all together in one piece. Eventually I hope to get round to doing a few of the male characters too to suit the female ones.

Here is a sneaky preview of the WIP...

All thats left now is to add a bit of tone, add the vines, a bit of texture then a final touch up and the first piece is done =D

Really looking forward to the final piece so I can get started on the next one, which I think will be Lois.

My First Post...

Hello everyone, I am new to Blogger and Blogs in general. I’ve got a website, but its nothing too impressive and I’m trying to redesign it at the moment (along with tonnes of other projects bustling around my brain lol!)
I’m 23 and live in Renfrew, Scotland. I finished Uni in May where I studied Animation and Digital Art. It was fun, but stressful and made me realise what I really want to do in life…. Make things.
I’ve been crafting since I was born, making things from ripped wrapping paper, sellotape and washing up liquid bottles. Now I try almost everything from traditional arts, knitting, ATC’s, jewellery making & card making to Digital art and animation.

I was recently commissioned to design a tattoo based on a triskele design. I also designed a tattoo for my cousin which is inspired by a celtic knot and some Japanese floral designs. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the process and it is n
ow permanently inked on someones skin forever =)

I’ll use this blog to show my art and crafty bits that I make, but I also want to post a pic of this…

The 1960 Singer 201k that my boyfriends, Mum is letting me use to start sewing. Its beee-yoooo-teee-fool =D
